Automating the Loading of Business Process Data Warehouses
Business processes drive the operations of an enterprise. In the past, the focus was primarily on business process design, modeling, and automation. Recently, enterprises have realized that they can benefit tremendously from analyzing the behavior of their business processes with the objective of optimizing or improving them. In the authors' paper, they address the problem of warehousing business process execution data so that they can analyze their behavior using the analytic and reporting tools that are available in data warehouse environments. They build upon their previous work that described the design and implementation of a generic process data warehouse for use with any business processes.
